Essie Penny Talk: an authentic copper metallic (full review here)
Etude House Gold Spangle (over China Glaze Liquid Leather):  a clear base with large gold hex glitters
Zoya Jules: sparkling light champagne taupe
Missha Crystal HKH01: bronze gold with holographic red, green and blue glitters
China Glaze Treasure Chest (over OPI You Don't Know Jacques): a clear base with small gold hexagon glitters
CND Jade Sparkle (over CND Asphalt): intense golden green shimmer
Essie Shine of the Times (over Essie Bobbing for Baubles): a multi chromatic flaky nail polish, shines red, yellow and green
Color Club Wish Upon a Rockstar (over Essie Mint Candy Apple): a clear base with multi color glitters and large purple hex glitters
Revlon Whimsical (over Essie Absolutely Shore): a milky and sheer sky blue jelly with large pink + light blue hex glitters and micro blue glitters - famous for being a dupe for glitter in the air
Etude House Blue Spangle (over OPI Skulls & Glossbones): a clear base with large blue hex glitters
Tony Moly GS09 - Shooting Star (over Essie Lilacism): a sheer lavender jelly with multi color large and small hex glitters 
NARS Night Rider: 'soft plum with silver glitter', pretty accurate, it leans towards pink a little.
OPI Pirouette My Whistle: a clear base with dense micro silver glitters and large white-silver hex glitters over Essie Armed & Ready - a deep olive green toned concrete grey with intense golden/bronze shimmer
Etude House Silver Spangle (over Orly You're Blushing):  a clear base with large silver hex glitters
Color Club Diamond Drops (over OPI Dating a Royal): a clear base with silver shards of holographic glitters, reminds me of shattered glass.
Etude House Gold, Blue, Silver and Pink Spangles (over A-England Tristam): a clear base with large gold, blue, silver and pink hex glitters, i wanted to show you guys what it looks when when used together
Nicole by OPI Love Your Life (over Essie Lilacism): a clear base with iridescent pink micro glitters and large pearly pink hearts
Etude House Pink Spangle (over Essie Cocktail Bling): a clear base with large pink hex glitters

I think this was the most exciting post c: My favorites here are my Etude House Spangles, Color Club glitters, Revlon Whimsical, Tony Moly Shooting Star and Essie Armed & Ready. The Nicole by OPI Love Your Life would have made the list too if the hearts were easier to fish out!!
I love special effects nail polishes as you can probably tell. They really add a little something to your average manicures. I'm normally too lazy to do nail art unless its the holidays and i have plenty of time to kill, so i'll always go for one of these to add dimension!
That concludes my nail polish stash! Some of these swatches didn't really do justice to the real nail polish so i'll probably do proper swatches on my nails some time in the future. This was just an overview to my collection c: I hope you enjoyed this series!

Do you own any of these? What are your favorite special effects nail polishes?

  6. I love this post too!
    My favorite would be Etude House gold spangle, it looks like a really pretty rose gold color! I hope I will get my hands on this color someday =)
    My favorite glitter polish brand is probably Essie and OPI, but the one thing I hate about glitter polishes is that they are a pain in the bum to get off lol!

  8. I really enjoyed these nail polish collection posts! You have an amazing collection! I love how you did the nail wheel with the layered glitters - like Etude House Gold Spangle over China Glaze Liquid Leather and Essie Shine of the Times over Essie Bobbing for Baubles. They resulted in some seriously stunning combinations.
